Carnivore diversity in the late Quaternary of Israel

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



During the past 70,000 years, Israeli carnivore faunas have varied only slightly in richness (number of species), but widely in diversity (including the relative abundances of the different species). Human population growth, sedentism, and the beginning of agriculture are often considered to have caused habitat destruction toward the end of the Pleistocene that may have affected animal populations. However, patterns of changing carnivores diversities from three sites in the Mediterranean region of Israel correlate well with changes in precipitation
